GBers,

Our office just recently installed an Xbox One, and as a PS4/PC gamer, I'm unfamiliar with Xbox's "couch competitive" games. I'd like to branch out our office out of the typical FIFA / Madden / NBA 2K platforms (not that there's anything wrong with those) - something along the lines of Nidhogg.

What are some of the best Xbox couch competitive or co-op games out there?

Thanks

I too am wondering the same! Overcooked looks like it would be real fun!

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is perfect for split screen play, and the online works ok if you want to get a few rounds on XBox Live.

# IDARB? Videoball? Starwhal? Killer Instinct? Knight Squad?

The Jackbox Party Pack would probably be a great fit for an office.

Thanks for the suggestions. My guess is it'll be Videoball, Halo: MCC and Jackbox. My office isn't exactly filled with gamers, so those should be the easiest for them to pick up quickly.

Castle Crashers was remastered and released for XB1 as well

Rocket League is great and can be played splitscreen.

NBA Street Vol 2.

Oh wait. EA hasn't done an NBA Street since PS2.

Get it together, EA.

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime looks like a cool coop game.

@oldmanlight: Rocket league is perfect - hadn't realized it came out on Xbox yet.

@justin258: It's a fairly run of the mill corporate office. I'm probably the youngest or 2nd youngest person here (@ 27), and if the games turn into a source of contention the system will no doubt get taken away.

I should also mention there's talk about getting Rock Band.

I'll have to spring for a fighting game too: either MKX or DiveKick.
